The Village of Nakusp’s settlement history began in 1892. It began as a port for conveyance of the Slocan ore. There were no roads, only railways from the Kootenay mining areas where goods had to be shipped by water transport from Nakusp to Revelstoke and Castlegar. Nakusp became a thriving community on this shipping route. Forestry overtook mining as the economic base and the village was incorporated in 1964.
